Award for PaCCS Researcher Professor Michael Levi
The University of Cardiff’s Professor Mike Levi has been awarded the 2020 International Anti-Corruption Excellence Award, which this year was awarded by the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Center of Qatar in partnership with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the Presidency of the Republic of Tunisia, and the National Anti-Corruption Commission of Tunisia.
Professor Levi is presently working on how online technologies are transforming transnational organised crime (Cyber-TNOC)through a PaCCS/ESRC funding grant for research on
Transnational Organised Crime: Deepening and Broadening our Understanding.
Professor Levi recently published some preliminary findings from this research project as part of a special issue on organised crime and money laundering, which explores making sense of professional enablers’ involvement in laundering organized crime proceeds and of their regulation. He has also written about PaCCS-funded research in a paper published in Crime and Justice which explores Organizing Crime: Mafias, Markets, and Networks.
